It’s been said more than a time or two that the media has trapped people into appearing to say things that they never really said. And it’s being said again! This time by T-Boz of TLC. Recently TLC gave an interview to an Australian morning show while they were on tour in Sydney. This was around the same time that everyone in America was going berserk over the see through dress that Rihanna wore to an awards ceremony. Take a look at the interview to refresh your memory!
We’re guessing that Rihanna’s fans aka “The Navy” sailed towards T-Boz’s mentions on Twitter because she seemed taken aback by the ruckus that was caused. In fact she didn’t really seem to know why Rihanna’s name was in her mentions on Twitter at all. Take a look at what she said in the tweets below.
So, it appears that Tionne is saying they never said anyone specifically and she understands why it looked as though they called out Rihanna…but they didn’t actually do it. She is right in that the interview was cut up into sections and neither she nor Chilli said RiRi’s name…or any other name for that matter. Since we can’t hear what the questions were that were being asked, we really don’t have a way of knowing what the show altered with their interview.
However, we will say this. T-Boz has been known for a whole lot of things throughout her career…but being shy about sharing her opinion is not one of them! If she actually said it…we think she would stand up and say it again! So, if she says it didn’t happen…we’re inclined to take her word. Hopefully Rihanna and her followers will do the same.
